3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can. Pours reddish light amber with thick foamy head. Aroma is faint floral hops with some weird off notes. Taste is malt-forward for an IPA, with strong bready malts and unexpected Belgianish floral spice notes. Grapefruit and pine hop notes are present but definitely in the background. Kinda an odd beer, tasty nonetheless.

On tap at the Smith Tower observation deck bar - amazing, by the way. Murky apricot pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet orange and bright citrus. Taste is citrus, a little grassy, sweeter up front with a stiff and lingering bitterness. Strong yet balanced.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can from Whole Foods. Pours a good looking, strong head. Cloudy, golden amber appearance. Smells of burnt tires, pine, melted plastic, and aspirin. Lacing is unusually splotchy and inconsistent. Overwhelming taste of aspirin with hints of grapefruit. Bitterness is good but heavily disrupted by the aspirin. Finishes with even more aspirin. Easily the most disappointing IPA I have experienced.

Can. Gusher! Hazy deep golden, massive head. Grapefruit and pine, sour tang, scathing aspirin bitterness. Not enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from World Beer Market via Rakuten. Served in a pint glass. 7.6% this orange copper beauty has a fantastically enticing hop bouquet giving off resinous dank floral & fruity notes. Thick a rich garden with the nurturing mulch and heady scent of blooming flowers and ripe citrus fruit. Med-full bodied the finish is very bitter and dry. The taste is a hop punch to the tastebuds, not as balanced as the nose just earthy bitter pine. Man this is bitter! Too bitter for my tastes.

16oz can picked up at Total Wine
A volcano erupted when I opened it up. Lost half of the can on my desk, floor and finally made it to the garbage can. Pours cloudy golden with a huge off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral, dusty, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, pine, fruity and very bitter, dry
Not balanced, a very bitter finish. Would have been footbalmed if I had a whole can.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Piny Skunky hops, very fresh. Cloudy gold with nice rich beige head. Piny hops, with an upfront bitter hit and tropical fruit in the finish. Bitterness is a bit much for me.

"Dark pour. Body like a double, big and smooth without the alcohol. Malt forward with a very pleasant fruitiness, though the hops do get drowned out a little. Not bad, not great."
